Casualty of Desperation

Chaos and bloodshed engulfed Iraq between 2006-2007.  Jamie Tarabay served as NPR’s Baghdad Bureau Chief during those years, reporting on the horrific tragedies that occured around her.  But disaster hit home when kidnappers seized a member of her colleague’s family.

Jamie’s original piece, produced by herself and Dianna Douglas, can be found here.
Thanks so much to the Third Coast Audio Festival for letting us use tape of Jamie at their last conference.
